Catch up on this weeks local golf news:
GOLF FORE HEALTH’s “Hot Dog Scramble” on June 30th, 2021 was a Smashing Success!
35 “Golf Fore Health” participants joined in at the 1st Annual “Hot Dog Scramble” lead by Lead Coach Ken Hurdle and a great TEAM of volunteers.
“Golf Fore Health” is a Morton Golf program held at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex and invites participants with any physical challenges to continue their rehabilitation through the game of golf. This is a wonderful way to surround yourself with other golfers who have had a stroke or other physical challenges while enjoying a healthy outdoor recreational environment.
Coach Ken Hurdle had a vision and created the “Hot Dog Scramble” event to energize the participants at the close of the spring and fall sessions.
The day started off on the #1 Tee of Arcade Creek Golf Course for a group photo. Every participant was offered a sleeve of golf balls and paired with a playing partner and volunteer. These players teed up the ball from approximately 100 yards out from the pin on the green as several cheers were heard around the golf course.
When the golf round was complete everyone met in the MacKenzie Sports Bar and Grille to finish off what they all came for. To eat HOT DOGS! The camaraderie is the special part of this group. They enjoy each other’s company so much they have asked if this program can be extended!
This golf program was previously known as “Saving Strokes” and was ran by the American Heart / American Stroke Association several years ago.
Tom Morton, President of Morton Golf Foundation stated that if just one person was helped through “Golf Fore Health” then our mission would be met.
This truly was the power of the moment . . . Golf is the tool of enriching people’s lives.
For more information to join or sponsor this program please contact the Northern California Institute of Golf Desk inside the Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop or call (916) 808- 2531.
